With the recent wave of high-profile data breaches, including the Target hack, which exposed the credit card data of millions of people, the threat landscape for enterprises and consumers appears gloomy. Whether it is nation-state attacks, cyber criminals or hacktivists, enterprises and consumers remain a constant target, especially with the growth of mobile devices, which bring even more points of entry for cyber crime.
However, help is on the way. This week, the RSA Conference, the IT security industry's largest event, will take place with leading security companies from around the world discussing new strategies and unveiling new technologies designed to help reduce cyber threats and protect against devastating attacks that can cripple a company or wipe out a consumer’s bank account.
